Elizabeth II, Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1953
In 1953 the Royal Mint issued new coins for the new Queen, Elizabeth II. But the legend was different
from all the coins that were to come, so that the 1953 coins and the Farthing in particular are one
year type coins.
This is important because there were only 4 dates of Elizabeth II Farthings ever issued, 1956 being
the last date of issue. Because the 1953 Coronation Farthing is a one year type, it is also the most difficult
one to get in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. We bought a group that had been put away in 1953,
some 65 years ago and had lain undisturbed until now.
Add a one year type, 1953 Coronation Farthing in Brilliant Uncirculated to your collection, they are
not easy to get.
